Agreed. His shirt designs aside, Cho has been a good and friendly member of this community and has taken *way* too much unjustified taunting and derision from a few members of this community. I think he is allowed, and has earned the right, to defend himself and even lose his temper after the year of weekly bile that has been spewed at him.

I agree, because someone is successful on this site I think people feel like they have free reign to say whatever they want about them, then when they actually <gasp> stand up for themselves they have a bad attitude or are ranting or too sensitive or can't take a critique. If you had people analyzing and questioning your every move you might not be so quick to pass judgment on James. I think everything he said in his thread was spot on.

I like the whole idea, but i'm not so sure about the colours. It's still good.

While this is true (and very well said) it should also be pointed out (mostly for the benefit of the haters) that in addition to the fan base, there are voters who specifically will not vote for a shirt just because they got caught up in the whole conspiracy theory thing.

Really? That's weird. I never even look at who designs the shirts. I vote and then sometimes I read the comments and see who designed them, but never just to vote.

Same here, first south vs east, now this. Majorly disappointed. Radiomode, please submit this elsewhere when the time limit is up. Every derby it seems to be the same thing.

Thanks, glad you like it. I think I could have made the composition a little more shirt friendly. It works as a prtin a lot better than a shirt. I also could have made it "Squidlection" I suppose! But live and learn I guess. Thanks for your support!

Ditto. Instead we get a shirt that should have been rejected due to similar shirts existing, and a shirt design that's so dark it probably won't even show up when printed. Hooray. At least my husband will be happy I'm not buying another shirt this weekend.

Migration? You mean this still has a chance of being printed? Hot dog I was so sad when this one didn't win but if there's still a chance I am excited again!

toe2254 wrote:generally i let the design dictate the shirt color, so the logical choice for this design seemed to be brown. if woot offered more colors we designers would have more options but they don't. still, thanks for the vote. i was hoping to at least make the top ten but it doesn't seem likely either.

not sure when migration will be available, but i think it's 30 days. if it were up to me i'd make the prices lower in the shop, but spreadshirt makes the lion's share of the price and i got a rather small percentage of it. thanks for your support!

That might not be as easy as it sounds. I think you have to have a different credit card or something for each account.

Sailor butterfly, I've been biting my tongue (not even sure why) but this has finally cured me of my Woot addiction (especially in terms of shirt woot). One design most probably will print badly (respected artists here told them this but it was perceived as a big conspiracy against them) while the other is so similar to existing shirts it's crazy. I thought that was the major rule about the designs. After all, we see it every week. Why was the elephant with the red balloon rejected. Why was sokowa's that other time when others just blithely stayed in the fog. I guess it's all about the masses and the benjamins.

I'll be buying from other sites now and not even bothering to vote in derbies. The priorities here are really messed up.

ISO30 wrote:No, really. Same applies to fireants. I specifically chose just a regular ant for my piece because to depict a fireant would of course require the ant to be aflame, which wouldn't work well in the snowy environment.



I don't know what your shirt is, nor will I bother to find out.

However, if you wanted to draw red ants that bite and you did not because you believed calling them fire ants would require they be on fire, I can be fairly certain that there is little to no hope of anything you did being less contrived than that belief, so I doubt I'm missing out on anything.

Thanks for clarifying though!

Who cares?
No one. No one cares about your idea, and no one thinks it's cleverer, and trust me, NO ONE would prefer to have you designing this shirt.

That might be the worst reason ever to put something in the center of something else.

- "Hey, why does your shirt look like carp?"
- "Oh, because genetics are central to our development and biology so I had to put it here."
- "Oh...that's really, really stupid."

To me, this is just one more example of people using the word "wooters". That seriously needs to stop. I can take you about as seriously when you say that as I can when someone uses the word "Sheeple".

Was your anger over this shirt absolved in the same way my anger towards you was by posting?

I'd love your execution.

Of course, I could be wrong. I'm sure there's a strong possibility that the artist saw a picture of umbrellas on some weird, random site and said: Here, here is my source of inspiration, here is what I will copy. And sure, maybe the two designs have only the idea of a dandelion in common, but COME ON, isn't that enough to convict a man of plagiarism? I mean, how many people could possibly find dandelions appealing in art? Like, 2? It's possible I should be down on my knees thanking you for your swift, efficient detective work in uncovering this heinous plot.

Of course, more likely, you're just a moron.

How did you even find that?

you know you don't have to be so harsh, its a neat idea, although not applicable to the coolness of this shirt.

The snow globes I owned tended to just be snow, a desolate wasteland void of all life, joy and happiness in which human beings wandered in the blinding, relentless rush of ice and water burning their skin and eyes until finally they collapsed and the snow buried their frozen, life-less bodies and they were forgotten, completely alone, their final tears immortalized in glass-like-ice across their eyes.

But yeah, totally.

I thought about something similar but didn't have time to finish it. Wasn't executed nearly as well as this one though. That's ok, I'm just practicing at this point, maybe some day I'll have a design good enough to make the fog.

I am so glad that are on this site to continuously point out to us 'ignorant' wooters what true tee-shirt art is all about. You are a shining beacon of hope, showing the poor misguided rabble here at Woot what true tee-shirt artistry is all about. Please forgive all of the many misguided fools who voted for shirts that you didn't like. Anyone who created something as beautiful as this is truly a tee-shirt master.
